Frank Turner Is Iron Maiden Mastermind

(Classic Rock) Singer-songwriter Frank Turner won a celebrity edition of BBC quiz show Mastermind at the weekend, after choosing Iron Maiden as his specialist subject.

The former Million Dead and Mongol horde frontman answered 13 questions on the NWOBHM giants and although he got four wrong and passed on two, his general knowledge round gave him enough points to beat contestants John Cooper Clark, Ben Faulks and Roy Hudd.

Before the show Turner admitted: "I want that trophy. I want it real bad." And after presenter John Humphries handed it to him he said: "It's been on my bucket list to be on Mastermind since I was a kid I'm very very proud to be on it." He also won a cash prize for the Shelter charity.

He scored a total of 20 points, with comedian Hudd second on 19 points and Clark and Faulks tying on 16. See the questions and answers here.
